Autumn front door

I don't really like to do a lot of decorating on our front porch. It's just too small and I don't want to have to trip over stuff to get into my house.

I was trying to remember when I made this wreath. It's probably between 5 and 10 years old now, but I just love it and can't get rid of it =)

Super, super easy to make. You just need a grapevine wreath, some pretty ribbon and a couple clusters of fall leaves. I just wrapped the ribbon around the wreath and tucked in the leaves. Easy peasy!
I also attached a simple metal sign to a grapevine wreath to make a cute side wreath. I used some jute to attach them together and Voila!

Cute right?

I'm baaaaaack!!

Holy guacamole! I can't even remember how long it's been since I've posted. I've been a tad bit busy with my greatest creation yet.

=) We're expecting another little guy in February.  <3
TERRIBLE morning sickness this time around + hubby not letting me paint anything = not a whole lot going on "project-wise" in this house.

I've been doing a little bit of nesting since the weather here has decided to go from 90 degrees to 50. Itching for fall now! VERY excited because October is THEE best month ever!
Anyways, here a couple pictures of what I've done so far to decorate for fall.

 That picture is my son at 3 months! He's now 4 =(

My son found some acorns on one of our walks. =)

Candlestick (painted white) and wicker bottle are from Hobby Lobby.
Both pumpkins and leaves garland are from Dollar General.
The black sign was a gift from a dear friend.
So fun and easy. I have a couple non-painted projects lined up, so we shall see what I can accomplish =)
